We've all heard of pullup, pushup, squat, bench, etc. programs. Is there such thing as a program to improve in muscleup repetitions? Im trying to come up with one of my own. If theres any ideas, post away!

Cheers

Roy

I've never heard of one because...I think we're (the CF community)the only ones doing muscleups as part of a fitness program! With that said, the Armstrong Pullup program would adapt well (google search for the program).

for what it's worth, i just approach them like i would any other exercise that i am deficient, or want to improve.

lately, i have been incorporating them into my warm-up and post-workout.

during my warm-up and post-workout i usually do three rounds at a leisurely pace, and pick three exercises/movements. lately i have been throwing in 5 muscle-ups per round, with a total of 30 pre and post workout.

have been thinking about the idea of using the weighted dip belt when doing them, or trying to do muscleups onthe crossbar of the squatrack to make them a little tougher.

Scott,

Before adding weight, I would recommend learning how to do wide grip muscleups; that is performing the muscleup while keeping your hands outside your shoulders. This will greatly increase the difficulty of the muscleup and begin some preliminary preparation for iron cross training.

Also, for an example of the number of muscleups possible in one 15 minute workout, see my post on a "Gymnastics Based WOD" in the Workout of the Day message board section.

Yours in Fitness,
Coach Sommer
